Keywords:Magnachip  Pixelplus 

Pixelplus Co. Ltd has filed a lawsuit at the Seoul Central District Court against MagnaChip Semiconductor Ltd for defamation and tortious interference with business relationships. Pixelplus seeks monetary damages, plus interest, against MagnaChip.

Pixelplus also filed a separate preliminary injunction at the Seoul Court against MagnaChip to obtain an order that will require MagnaChip to refrain from engaging in acts that have and will negatively impact Pixelplus' business relationships with its existing and potential customers. Pixelplus cited these acts include: communicating with Pixelplus' clients regarding the said infringement of MagnaChip's patents and that Pixelplus is not a reliable or suitable company.

MagnaChip released an announcement that it disputes the complaints of Pixelplus and said that it will fight these claims. The two parties also have on-going patent disputes related to photo diode and sensors. Pixelplus was favoured by the Seoul Central District Court on the patents but Magnachip announced plans to appeal to the ruling.
